, president obama sat down for interviews with spanish language networks saying he hopes to have reform laws in place by the end of the year. >> really, the issue here is not so much technical as it is political. it's a matter of republicans and democrats coming together and finding a meeting of the minds and then making the case. and, you know, i'm hopeful that this can get done and i don't think that it should take many, many months. i think is something that we should be able to get done certainly this year and i'd like to see if we can get it done sooner in the first half of the year if possible. >> the president's proposals follow recommendations from a bipartisan group of eight senators. nar favor of a path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented workers in the country. but only after strengthening the nation's borders. he said his administration has been working hard on border security. >> i make no apologies for us enforcing the law as well as the work that we've done to strengthen border security. as a consequence, we've actually seen an 80% drop in illegal crossings and what we'
a strong standard-bearer once president obama step downs four years from now, and president obama's popularity is now the highest it has been since the first few months he was in office. today's poll numbers are a reflection of the president's inauguration speech when he spoke boldly of progressive values in the country. i'm joined tonight by joy reid, managing editor of the grio. i mean, if she were to run, if she were to announce, wouldn't there be just this groundswell enthusiasm because we know she is so qualified? >> well, i think partly because of her clear and obvious qualifications, but also, hillary-land has a pent-up desire for this woman that has never gone away there was tremendous resentment between obama and hillary camps in 2008 partly because her supporters are so passionate about the idea that she should be our first woman president. it was very hard for them to walk away from that. there was a big push to get her on the ticket, to be vice president. they were disappointed that didn't happen. she then takes the job of secretary of state and really acquitted hersel
up, d-day. in a shattering moment this afternoon, president obama threw down the gauntlet. he demanded congress pass a potent immigration reform bill, one that fixes the problem of decades, deals with the 12 million people here illegally, stops the illegal hiring and exploitation of workers. so the challenge is out there right now right there in tonight's news packed and ready for tomorrow's newspapers. will it explode into action, light a firecracker under the republicans? will it detonate an avalanche of action driving teeth into the reform, ending the perennial talk that's led to nothing or to the old bogus reforms of the past? will the politicians get real or play more games of ethnic fear, economic exploitation, and wedge politics? was today the end of all that? could that be possible? let's take a hard look with chuck todd. you heard all my questions. i'm older than you, i have been through simpson/mazzoli. i know we're laughing about -- >> i love it's getting a comeback. >> we've tried it all before. we've passed bills that said it's got teeth in it and it's got amnesty

programs. >> sean: she is lying just like obama lied about the republicans? >> lying? >> sean: just about not caring for kids with autism and down's syndrome. >> what it reminded me of the granny over the cliff. demonize the opposition and walk away from a spirited debate. we need a debate not the did he monization of the opposition. she is flat out wrong. discretionary spending out of control. we spent trillion dollars in the year 2011 and set to grow by 80% over the next ten years. that is spending discretionary spending, healthcare, that is out of control. >> that is what i don't understand why they didn't want to move forward to get something done on entitlement reform on the non-discretionary side. >> sean: you seem offended. i am tired of republicans getting lied about as if they don't care about sick people or old people or anything else. it's one big propaganda campaign. >> they want you to get riled about it. let's see, there is 10.8% unemployment rate in the city that you gave a speech. can we talk about that? >> sean: i agree with that part. >> i'm tired of being toiled i'm a r
has bent the curve, brought spending down from where it was. at the per capita level, president obama has actually brought spending down since he took office. so remember that. bush, more spending. obama, less spending. that is what is true. >> it's clear the president is not serious about cutting spending. but spending is the problem. >> we've got to stop the president on this issue. he is an out-of-control train right now on spending. >> the president remains committed to an agenda that calls for ever higher spending, a government that is out of control. >> the president wants to pretend that spending isn't the problem. >> it is a spending problem. and the president wants to increase taxes to continue the spending. >> these democrats are going to spend us right into bankruptcy. they're not serious about getting things under control and stopping the spending. >> the white house is so unserious about cutting spending. >> none of that is true. i mean, to the extent that true means attached to facts. here is spending under bush. here is spending under clinton. here is how spending has d
's right, sean. interesting illustration was with president obama's inauguration they actually shut down one of the runways at dulles airport it make it for private jets. >> sean: that's so nice. >> this is a massive problem. we are not opposed to wealth creation. when it's wealth creation by extracting it from taxpayers and manipulating in a crony capitalist system. >> sean: if i'm one of the americans i spoke about earlier my house is underwater or one of the six americans on food stamps or this is why we want to turn the camera on something that has never been exposed. people in washington never want to talk about the house styles. they don't want to talk about the construction and private jets. the private jet guys that built at dulles. they thought it was going to take them several years to sell those slots. they sold out in 72 hours. that is the level of corporations and high rollers. >> sean: they already have a lot of money. if you own a private jet. they are not cheap. >> exactly. got to get in there what about the dinners, the meals, the lunches, that's still going on, right? >
as secretary of state this friday. last night, she sat down with her boss and former rival, president obama for a much-anticipated interview. >> the two powerful politicians described their unique partnership and stoked speculation about clinton's future. here's abc's larry jacobs. >> reporter: it was an extraordinary event. an adoring president publicly praises his former political nemesis on "60 minutes." >> i consider hillary a strong friend. >> reporter: the side-by-sided a nation fest sent speculation into hyperdrive. was this an endorsement for a hillary clinton run in 2016? >> i have to tell you. you guys in the press are encore jabl. i was inaugurated four days ago. and you're talking about elections four years from now. >> and i'm out of politics. i'm forbidden from hearing these questions. i don't think he or i can make predictions about what's going to happen tomorrow or the next year. >> reporter: secretary of state and the president refused to speculate on the next presidential campaign. they became closer over the last fur years. >> part of our bond is, we've been through the
week, chicago teenager, was in washington for president obama's inauguration. she was gunned down in a park just a few blocks from her school. the apparent innocent victim of a gang war. president obama made gun control a priority for his second term, pushing lawmakers to pass legislation that will limit number of round in a magazine clip, renew a ban on so-called assault weapons and require universal background checks for gun purchases. the nra says it is no longer on board with that because it just won't work. >> you are never going to get criminals to go through universal background checks. >> reporter: republicans and even some rural state democrats agree. that is a big challenge for president obama. rob, sunny, become to you. >> all right, thank you, karen. the world's biggest retailer made a decision about ammunition sales. wal-mart customers may buy only three boxes of ammo a day. because of limited supplies these days. with demand up for bullets. wal-mart says it is striking a balance between serving hunters and sportmen and selling firearms responsibly. >>> in newtown, an
way, we're going to have growth. the unemployment rate should come down. and president obama is exactly right. focusing on the people at the lower end here. you fix and help the people at the lower end by getting the economy going again. you're exactly right. and the psychologically for the democrats and republicans, it's so important that there be some consensus. you get paul ryan here with his charts, and it looks like the world is going to end at some point. and you need to get everyone onboard to the idea, no, the world is not going to end. >> andrea, i was on capitol hill this weekend. you get a sense that a lot of the gun legislation is not going to be successful. immigration reform is moving at pace. they are having very constructive conversations, republicans and democrats together. the entitlement piece is going to be hard, whether the president wants to go very far on medicare. he has liberals saying don't do it, don't raise the retirement age. so how do these pieces come together here in the next three, four, five months? >> that is exactly the question. when he ev
was taken down in 2006 and 28th not by a republican but barack obama. >> there is no barack obama at the moment. let's not make too many assumptions. in 1992, nobody wanted to run against george bush in the primary because they thought he was unbeatable. i think somebody will take her hon on if she runs. i think the white house and biden has a confluence of interest and the white house doesn't want to see biden lose his stature and biden doesn't want to lose his stature. biden wants to run and make himself presidential. >> i can't really look forward to 2016 because i can't even look past tomorrow. tomorrow's show, seriously, it is -- i always joke, it's like night of the thousand stars. look at this. willie, look, the mt. rushmore of whatever it is the mt. rushmore of. al gore and bill gates will be on tomorrow. we're looking forward to that. also, coming up today, we're talking to senators john mccain and chuck schumer about their proposals on immigration reform and whether they really think this time is different than last time and former senate majority leader, all around grea
in lines for hours to make sure that president obama would get elected and would go down the road of a progressive agenda? what about all the ground troops who went door to door? the get out the vote effort that worked really hard to re-elect this president. this was a romney vote. that's what this was tonight. they didn't do it to face the same obstruction from republicans. all those workers out there. that's not why they did it. harry reid is leth the minority party run the country. he's giving the republicans all the ammunition they need to block president obama's second-term agenda. and you know what? he's going to regret it. so what does this mean? this means that activist groups are the only ones that can save the country when it comes to legislation because the activist groups are going to have to go out and get in these districts and in these states where senators are who are not doing the right thing and primary them. and let them know that they're not going to win the next election. do the unions of this country deserve what just happened tonight after as hard as they wo
. >>> and in the big finish tonight, president obama and outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton sat down for a rare joint interview with steve kroft of "60 minutes" this weekend. the two discussed their past rivalry, their current working relationship and american foreign policy. it was a public sign of solidarity between the two former rivals. yet that proved to be too much for the folks over at fox news. the "fox & friends" trio complained about the lack of real news, and attacked crawford for not digging deeper into clinton's health issues. >> the interview was awkward. they were giddy saying goodbye. and right at the top, steve kroft said they only gave us 30 minutes, which of course means there is not going to be any real news. and there wasn't. >> but if you give somebody 30 minutes, you could get real into it, especially steve kroft, who is usually awesome. but i think for some reason they didn't dig into anything at all. >> 30 minutes? come on. >> i would like to know, did she pass out and hit her head? was she pushed? how did she hit her head and get a concussion? >> and the whi
and refusing to recognize that, excuse me for disrupting your illusion, president obama is the president, and republicans in the house that once could still see through the dark know they really can't go on like this. margaret is not alone. down in baton rouge governor bobby jindal says we have to stop being the stupid party. haley barbour warns this party to stop making stupid comments again, that word about rape. but don't lose heart. like an old car that won't turn off even when you turn the key to off, some character out in new mexico wants to stick women who are raped with stiff prison sentences if they get an abortion. she calls it tampering with the evidence. but wait a minute, crazy guys. didn't one of your republicans say you can't get pregnant in case of a rape? anyway, tonight finding our way through the crazy even as we hear the first loud barks and meows from the backyard of american politics. i have with me joy reid and "mother jones'" david corn. anytime i can get you to giggle a little bit, joy, i consider myself a success. i owe some of this material to a lot of republic
the moment they sat down to talk with cbs' news "60 minutes," president obama and secretary clinton, seem like they've been the best of friends for decades. >> i just wanted to have a chance to publicly say thank you because i think hillary will go down as one of the finest secretary of states we had. i'm going to miss her. wish he was sticking around. hillary's been one of the most important advisers i've had on a whole range of issues. >> reporter: how did they heal the wounds from their intense rivalry? during that highly contentious 2008 primary fight. >> i can't tell who i'm running against. >> we're just getting warmed up. >> ancient history because of the people we are. also, we're professionals. >> reporter: the interview will clearly leave many wondering, was this the endorsement of a 2016 presidential run? >> i don't think either he or i can make predictions about what's going to happen tomorrow or the next year. >> clearly, the door is open for her. she's leaving the scene. she's not leaving politics. >> reporter: at least clinton's health doesn't seem to be a factor. announcin
with president obama today as her term winds down. yesterday was full of drama as clinton gave her long awaited testimony on those attacks in benghazi. at times combative and other times emotional. clinton said she took full responsibility for the security lapses at the american consulate. she fired back over questions about what was said in the days just after the attack. >> was it because of a protest or guys out for a walk one night and decided they would kill some americans? what difference at this point does it make? >> confirmation hearings begin in the senate today for clinton's replacement, john kerry. the massachusetts democrat and former presidential contender is not expected to face any major opposition. >>> the white house is giving the go ahead to general john allen's nomination as europe's top nato commander. the nomination had been put on hold during the investigation into allen's e-mail relationship with a florida woman. but now that the pentagon cleared allen, his nato nomination moves forward. >>> many parents are angry at one southern california school district. they say allo
some moderate conservative thinkers who ought to know better. obama is out to kill the wounded. now that republicans are down. he's not going to make any proposals that republicans might actually sign onto. instead, he's going to make them look bad on things like immigration. but it's interesting -- >> but that's not working, cynthia. >> -- supposed to be the party of personal responsibility. >> that narrative, gene, isn't working because quite clearly there's a bipartisan plan on immigration as we see today. anytime boehner, the speaker of the house, who i don't dislike, would come out for a background check on guns, just push one measure, if he could get that through the house, he'd be a leader on the newtown, connecticut, horror. he could be the leader. it would force harry reid to do the same. he doesn't have to be a victim. >> i think dr. tucker's diagnosis was absolutely right. and i think, you know, this is the party's way of trying to deal with its own internal contradictions and issues. the republican party has issues, and the number one issue which they don't want to deal
's last day as secretary of state. but after watching the "60 minutes" interview with president obama and secretary clinton, it seemed rather clear we've not seen the last of her. from the moment they sat down to talk with cbs news' "60 minutes," president obama and secretary clinton, seemed like they had been the best of friends for decades. >> i just wanted to have a chance to publicly say thank you because i think hillary will go down as one of the finest secretary of states we have had. i'm going to miss her. wish she was sticking around. hillary's been one of the most important advisers that i've had on a whole range of issues. >> reporter: so, how did they heal the wounds from their intense rivalry? during that highly contentious 2008 primary fight. >> i can't tell who i'm running against. >> well, we're just getting warmed up. it's ancient history because of the people we all are. also, we're professionals. >> reporter: the interview will clearly leave many wondering, was this an endorsement of a 2016 presidential run? >> i don't think either he or i can make predictions about
minutes," president obama sat alongside his departing secretary of state hillary clinton, a one-time political rival who he now describes as one of his closest advisers. secretary clinton, of course, is stepping down from her post, fueling -- you'd think you're on steroids and not me, seriously. just stop. >> are you juicing? >> she is. >> i had a huge allergic reaction to something. >> we don't want to hear about your rashes, so roll the clip. go. >> what's the -- i have to ask you, what's the date of expiration on this endorsement? >> oh, steve, you know -- i know -- >> i have to ask that question. i mean, come on. i mean, you're sitting here together. everybody in town is talking about it already. and it's taking place. >> you know, steve, i've got to tell you. you guys in the press are incorrigible. i was literally inaugurated four days ago. >> right. >> and you're talking about elections four years from now. >> yeah. and i, as you know, steve, i am still secretary of state, so i'm out of politics, and i'm forbidden from even hearing these questions. >> boy. you know, they h
supporters of your opponents by looking down your nose at them. and, obviously, that sort of made me remember the comment for which mr. obama was much maligned in the 2008 campaign. let me just play that. >> we went to some of these small towns in pennsylvania, like a lot of small towns in the midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them. and it's not surprising then, that they get bitter. and they cling to guns or religion. >> rowland, should the democrats heed president clinton's advice on the gun issue? >> i think what the key for democrats to do is, again, to be sensible when it comes to guns. you have seen democrats who are strong nra supporters say, we should do something. and that's what the real key here is. the problem is when it becomes, you either do something, and the opposition says, no, you do nothing. there has to be some kind of middle ground. so what some democrats are saying is, look, we've got to be able to appeal to them. but it's not just folks in the south also, erin. you have democrats in minnesota, wisconsin, maine, new york that have a
the othe obama administration announcing it will send four high tech fighter jets to egypt even though that country is in militant hands and of course hillary clinton's testimony about libya. here to run it all down for us colonel ralph peters joins us from washington. what's the headline of the hillary clinton testimony today for you. >> hillary mops floor with congressman and senators. she was as james rosen pointed out. she was prepared. she had it down. she had answers anticipatory answers ready. the congressman and senators didn't do their homework. they made speeches again as james rosen pointed out. their questions were ill focused. they went down the red herring road. they needed to ask hillary, why when it went down, if shes would was aware there was an attack, why she didn't immediate qulatly ask ask for urgent military help. they needed to ask her specifically who and when denied the request from libya for greater embassy security. they needed -- i would have asked her this question. were you asked, madam secretary, to go on the sunday talk shows before susan rice was asked
bureaucratic red tape coming down the pike, and i think we need to be a little bit concerned about this. now, the righties out there are saying well, obama care, it's just too much government intervention. what about this? listen to the real folks calling a talk show, talking about what they're living with. first of all, you got to fix the visa backlog. okay? how do you do that? you get people engaged to do it and you start making phone calls and calling them. in maybe you can use the dmv. i mean, this is one of the big problems right here, the backlog. what that gentleman was talking about off the radio show. and a time frame. can we make it reasonable? do we want to tell these folks hey, you got to wait another 12 or 13 years. what? some of these folks have been here more than ten years. can't we get them on the fast track? how much loyalty do they have to show? what the republicans are afraid of is that they'll vote for the democrats so, we got to slow this baby down a little bit. the other thing is paying fines and back taxes. all right. let's take, for instance, that there is someone ou
